Because I have the pleasure of living interstate from all my family, I am in the incredibly lucky siutation that I can do whatever I want during the Christmas+New Year holiday/”shut down” period. And because I spend 50 weeks of the year working like a madman, this year I decided to spend it doing as little as possible and watching anime. Notably, I decided to test out the AnimeLab platform. Which is fine as far as streaming platforms go. If you want “legit access” to anime I’d put it above crunchyroll.
Anyway I watched/rewatched a bunch of fantastic shows and have some thoughts about them. Some more than others: Continue reading “Extra- Christmas and New Year Backlog!”
I’m only about a month late but whatever. Fall 2018 was a fairly uninspired season- chatting with a friend yesterday I literally couldn’t name a single show I’d watched without referring to my notes. Continue reading “Fall 2018 Anime Round Up”
It felt like I watched very few shows this season, so looking back at what I had apparently watched was quite a surprise. Here’s some thoughts: Continue reading “Summer 2018 Anime Review”
Being a Canberra boy (well, more-or-less) I have a bit of a soft spot for our local conventions. Given they don’t cost any money for me to go to, are within 20 minutes driving distance of my house (with ample parking) and have by far the largest number of my friends/acquaintances in attendance; it’s a pretty low bar for me to be impressed.
Well, it’s still a high bar as I’m a cynical jackass who doesn’t have positive feelings but attending an interstate event is much more of a hassle and thus primes me to expect more (and thus be disappointed more). Continue reading “GAMMA.CON 2018 (and Wintercon 2018) Review”
For the weekend of August 14th-15th 2018, I got to go to SMASH– the Sydney Manga and Anime Show. Have been to every one of them since… 2014? 2012? Saw them at the old Sydney Convention Centre, Rosehill Gardens and now Sydney’s new ICC. Well, the Exhibition Centre part of the ICC (as opposed to the Convention Centre which I assume the ‘CC’ part of ICC stands for) Continue reading “SMASH 2018- TL:DR it was fine but 2019 could be great”
Here’s some random things that I’ve watched over recent months and some thoughts. Continue reading “TV & Movie recap-May/June 2018”
Unfortunately, as they more or less say in Jurassic park, life finds a way to get in the way of watching anime.
Specifically, I was away with family no internet for about four months so started the Spring 2018 season super late. That being said, I somehow managed to catch up and finish all the shows worth watching. So here’s some thoughts that definitely follow the same format as my other wrap ups: Continue reading “Spring 2018 Anime wrap up”
Despite being an anime weabo, I also watch other things. In fact, I’ve watched a lot of live action stuff given how meh the last anime season was. Here’s some notes on those things. Continue reading “Random other things watched during the Winter 2017/2018 season”
What a season. So many shows that I’ve watched with one eye while writing emails and doing other admin paperwork. Thank *deity* that I’ve been pretty sick the last week and thus at reduced mental capacity and able to tolerate some of the shows I persisted in watch.
Here’s my category by category breakdown. Definitely the same categories I used for previous seasons. Continue reading “Winter 2017/2018 wrap up”
The Winter 2017/2018 anime season is half done so it’s worth doing a stocktake on where things are at. I was planning to do this at the 3 episode mark but found that literally half the shows were still ‘Maybe worth watching’.
